General description

Virus inhibitory protein endoplasmic reticulum-associated interferon-inducible (Viperin) belongs to the RSAD2 family and is highly inducible by both type I and type II interferons, but little or no induction is observed in moncytic cell lines. Studies suggest that viperin is involved in host antiviral response, as viperin induction is observed from viral infections. Research also reveals that viperin inhibits influenza replication by disrupting its release from the plasmic membrane through the altering of plasma membrane fluidity by affecting formation of lipid rafts. Lipid rafts are known detergent-resistant microdomian sites for influenza budding.


Recombinant protein corresponding to human Viperin.


Anti-Viperin Antibody, clone MaP.VIP detects level of Viperin & has been published & validated for use in WB, IH, FC, IP & IC.
Immunohistochemistry Analysis: A 1:500-1:1,000 dilution from a representative lot detected Viperin in human colon and rat liver tissues.

Immunoprecipitation Analysis: A representative lot was used by an independent laboratory in HepG2 cell lysate (Hinson, E., et al. (2008). JBC. 284(7):4705–4712).

Flow Cytometry Analysis: A representative lot was used by an independent laboratory in mouse liver, spleen, lung, and lymph node cells (Hinson, E., et al. (2010). J. Immunol. 184:5723-5731).

Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A representative lot was used by an independent laboratory in mouse spleen cells (Hinson, E., et al. (2010). J. Immunol. 184:5723-5731).
